 The Amanda West Newsletter | NEWS & ADVENTURES of a mama musician artist
| March 2021

Hello Dear One,

The flowers are budding, hope is rising, vaccines are rolling out and the world is slowly opening up again... AND... people are bleary-eyed, shell-shocked, and simply exhausted from a year and more on this pandemic rollercoaster. Wherever you are standing right now in this great variance of Being, I honor your experience - your hard work, your excitement, your sorrow and your struggles. It's been A YEAR.

The Spring Equinox arrives this weekend, marking the first official day of Spring, and bringing a moment of equality to day and night. (Equinox = "Equal Night.")  This season on planet earth  comes with the invitation to consider 
B A L A N C E ... 

What does that even mean? Making space for all of it: What frozen parts need melting? What areas need clearing? What new seeds need planting and nurturing?

Please join the amazing Debbie Nargi-Brown and I this weekend as we offer sacred space in community in which to consider these questions and find your own answers through meditation and song.

sending Love & Song to you
wherever & however you are,

A NOTE ON INCLUSION:  All of you are welcome here.
I have led many, many *women’s* events in my time. I love gathering with women in sacred circle and song, AND…

There are too many people who feel left out of these circles, who I very much want to be included ~ those who don’t have wombs, transwomen, non-binary people, anyone who connects with the feminine space and energy.

Writing a long tagline of explanations and definitions after “women” doesn’t fit well in promotional spaces, so I’m trying out something new: A WOMXN’s event (still pronounced “women.”)

My hope is that “X” will give the invitation and sense of welcome and safety that is so messy to write any other way.

YOU, yes, YOU I want to feel welcome. All of you. In our sacred, feminine circle, honoring the seasons and the earth which holds us all.  I do hope you will join Debbie & I!

Solo Livestream Concert 

A M A N D A   W E S T

at Folk Alliance International Conference 2021
Special "Folk Unlocked" Showcase

We had over 60 people join us live for this concert that was part of the Folk Alliance International Conference, and now the REPLAY is available here for you to watch if you missed the show earlier! (Ah, the joys of technology).

The theme of the concert was HOPE, because we can always use more of that. We had a really fun time. Thank you again to all who tuned in, and to all who have shared in this gift of music & song. 

Perhaps you can make this some of your weekend entertainment. It should pair nicely with a cup of tea, a biscuit and a warm blanket. Please note: the show starts about 3 and 1/2 minutes in, and if you stay to the end, you get a bonus peek at my two cute children in their pajamas, with popcorn.

WRITE ME after you watch, and let me know what you think.
